John Fahey - Death Chants, Breakdowns and Military Waltzes (1963)

My favorite Fahey.  This is the original 1963 version, not the 1967 re-recorded version, so it's got that haunting lo-fi production and back room reverb.


Gelo - Havin' It My Way (1993)

The only thing more surprising than the hilarious cover on this one is how good the music actually is.  As the story goes, Gelo was just another Cali gangsta who decided to record an album, and somehow got two sides of killer P-Funk beats to do his thing over.  Released on the collectible SMG Solar Music Group label.  Great stuff.


Clifford Jordan - Glass Bead Games (1973)

One of the best from the Strata-East label, this is a deep soul jazz experience that many call the lesser-known companion album to Coltrane's A Love Supreme.
